What Are Indices?

Tradedirect365 Trading App

An index or indice is best defined as a portfolio of equities that represent the value of a particular market or sector of the market. Almost every country in the world has an exchange traded Index – a market (index) that reflects the underlying strength or weakness of the largest companies in that country. It is very much an indicator of a country’s economic health and well-being.

For example, the Australia 200 is Australia’s leading share market index and represents the largest 200 companies trading on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). If, on average and all other things being equal, the stock price of these companies goes up, then the Australia 200 Index will also rise as a result. If stock prices decline, the index will more than likely fall in value.

How Do You Trade Indices?

Trading index CFDs gives investors the opportunity to speculate on the price movement of an index without actually owning any of the stocks that make up the index. Traders can go both LONG (a buy trade) and SHORT (a sell trade) when using CFDs to trade indices – this is one of the biggest benefits of trading indices via a CFD trading platform. Find out more about the advantages of CFD trading versus traditional share trading here.

Example;

  • You believe that the Australian 200 Index will rise, so you place a ‘BUY’ trade on our trading platform.
  • 3 hours later the value of the Aussie 200 Index has risen. You will make a profit for every point that the Aussie 200 index goes up in value.
  • However, if the Aussie 200 index declines in value, you will make a loss for every point that the index moves against you.
  • Our trading platform (or App) will tell how much profit or loss you are making in real-time throughout the day and night.

What Are The Advantages of Index Trading using CFDs?

  • Speculate on the price movement of rising and falling markets
  • Leverage
  • Access a wide range of markets from one trading platform
  • An array of trading opportunities
  • CFDs mirror the underlying security
